EchoStar Mobile, Thales Highlight 2 GHz Benefits for PPDR
Thursday, September 14, 2017 | Comments

EchoStar Mobile and Thales said the 2 GHz band is important for communications connectivity for public protection and disaster response (PPDR) and provides resiliency for mission-critical applications.

EchoStar Mobile, a subsidiary of EchoStar with a European Union (EU)-wide licensee for an integrated mobile satellite services (MSS) network with a complementary ground component, and Thales detailed their approach to PPDR in a white paper.

"With the successful launch of EchoStar XXI, EchoStar Mobile and Thales are well positioned to provide an effective PPDR solution,” said Jennifer A. Manner, senior vice president of regulatory affairs at EchoStar. “This white paper shows the important role that the 2 GHz band will play in bringing reliable connectivity to the PPDR community."

EchoStar Mobile and Thales announced in June a collaboration to develop end-to-end mobile satellite and terrestrial solutions for PPDR, as well as specialized mobile satellite and terrestrial terminals.

An S-band MSS satellite with Ka-band feeder links, EchoStar XXI, owned and operated by EchoStar, is located at the 10.25 degrees east geostationary orbital position. EchoStar Mobile will use a portion of the EchoStar XXI payload to provide MSS capacity throughout Europe, including the European Union.
